If CloudMonitor can monitor more services after a scale-out or technical architecture improvement, you can add the services and their instances to application groups. This allows you to manage alert rules and view monitoring data by application group.

Prerequisites

An application group is created. For more information, see Create an application group.

Background information

Only Elastic Compute Service (ECS), ApsaraDB for RDS, and Server Load Balancer (SLB) instances can be automatically added to an application group that is created in the dynamic mode. You must manually add instances of other services to an application group.

Add a service and its instances to an application group

  1. Log on to the CloudMonitor console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Application Groups.
  3. On the Application grouping tab of the Application Groups page, click the name or ID of the target application group.
  4. In the Group Instances section of the Group Resource page, click Add Product.
  5. In the AddResource right-side pane, select the service and instances to be added to the application group.
  6. Click Confirm.

Add more instances of a service to an application group

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Application Groups.
  3. On the Application grouping tab of the Application Groups page, click the name or ID of the target application group.
